Take off the plate.
Remove the switches.
Install these.
Put plate back on.
There will be enough space to install these switches next to each other? Could there be any interference issues with the motion sensors next to each other?

Anyone know how to use the daylight off function?

Only downside (upside in most situations) of this switch is that it's hyper sensitive even at the lowest setting.

I bought this two years ago for $23 and installed in my pantry. Works great and auto-shuts off when there’s no motion after a minute - I think you can change the settings too.

Don’t use these for the bathroom fans. You need the 5 amp version for that.
Umm, why?

Bathroom fans use around 20W, some less, some more, most is about 60W. Why in heck would you expect a bathroom fan to need over 500W?

Unless you're talking about a fan with an integrated heat light? But even then, that light is separately switched from the fan.

The motion sensor will trigger both bulbs simultaneously. Might as well put them on the same switch if you're going to do that.

We are just going by what it says on the product box. So if you think it’s ok to use for bathroom fan, go ahead.

Shouldn't have a space issue, might need to be a bit tidier with tucking the wires in but no big deal. Both sensors will go on, but I'm not sure what other interference you'd encounter?

You make a valid point. But if you look at the packaging, the 2 amp version of the occupancy switch doesn't recommend using it for a fan. If you look at the 5 amp version, it has a fan listed.

It clearly says Exhaust Fan to the right of the switch (blister pack) and it is absent from the 2 amp version.

I had to jump in...

Lights are resistive load, fans are inductive load. The fan will pull much more current when first turned on to get it spinning. I would stick with what the manufacturer recommends to avoid your switch failing, or worse, a fire.

i have a two way switch for garage lights. one switch is inside the house ( as soon as i enter the house) and one switch is in the garage on a wall. can i replace it with the switch which is currently in garage wall? this will make my life so much easier. as soon as someone enters garage, the lights will go on.

dont know if this will work with 2 way switch,.

If you're buying the 5 amp version of this switch, it's available at HD and likely elsewhere for much less than Amazon (ex. $36 at HD): https://www.homedepot.ca/product/lutron ... 1000720114 https://www.lowes.ca/product/lutron-mae ... tch-393723

5 amp version works with a 3-way switch as you've described - no such thing as a '2-way switch'. :)
Nobody cares which exploitative corporations you give your money to every month. Capitalism is a plague on this planet. Get that crap out of your signature.

This is called a three way switch. Not a 2 way switch.

Being a single pole switch, this will not work for your garage setup.

Where are you guys seeing this for $18? I only see $22. Did HD RFD creeps change the pricing since they saw this thread on RFD?

Change your store to anjou and use ship to home if you have 49$ to spend.

Lutron Maestro 5 A Countdown Digital Eco-Timer

https://www.homedepot.ca/product/lutron ... 1000739921
I was just going to post this as I have this countdown digital timer in all my bathrooms with exhaust fans. They work great and you get to pick how long you want the fan to stay on for after you start the timer too.

The original motion sensor by the OP is great for the laundry area and it is sensitive enough that if my wife is ironing or folding stuff it won't shut off or require her to wave at it to turn back on too. In regards to the price this is pretty standard everyday price and that is what I paid for it last November.
